Owie...


Illustration 168....had to be really fast today as am out of energy.  First of all, I made the this sketch (which is suppose to e me) too long limbed.  I am not a tall girl...not by a long shot, however this pretty much sums up me. I had an awesome (but difficult) training session today at the park with a friend and it was challenging.  I have almost forgotten how good it is to be challenged and supported by someone while exercising.  It makes the workout more difficult but I like it more.  I have been training on my own at the gym since March and I know I most certainly don't push myself as hard as I could.  Today proved that.  Exercise is a funny thing...I'm full of endorphins and feel great but at the same time my muscles are on fire.  I need sleep soon.  I hope am not so sore tomorrow.

For other news, had a great time at the studio today.  Everyone was there and I had a productive day.   I haven't painted but did a couple of pen and ink A3 fish bone pieces with a totally new theme and I like the results!

Some journal entries!

Hi, hi!  How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri. I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more.  Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Burning

Howdy! This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash. I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
